Mix Fruit Ice, Es Campur Surabaya

This is another variation of Indonesian cold dessert Mix fruit ice (Es campur Surabaya), after I write up a similar recipe as "Indonesian style mix fruit ice".

The only thing that makes the cold dessert distinctive is that I have fashioned an idea how to just simply carried away for your picnic, it’s so cool, you’ll see through the pictures and you’ll know what I’m talking about.

Es campur (Indonesia style mix fruit ice) is the simplest cold dessert that very easy to make, moreover, its always loved by all Indonesian. It is one of the perfect dessert, is just a way out if I ran out of time for an invited guest and needed to have a yummy-cold dessert to serves. 

I call this recipe as it brought me back to an unforgettable memory of the small town that I always longed for, a small city, where I was born and grew up,
“ How I wish I could be able to visit the town over again ”.

It was pretty clear when I recall, it just seems like yesterday, knowing if I’ve got a special treat from my parents that because I’ve done a good work. They would definitely took me over to my favorite restaurant to have my delicious food and my most wanted dessert “Es campur Surabaya”.

The depot was just so special to my family, which their menu are pretty affordable and the most important thing, I believe that the foods are just cooked with love because they are so yummy! 

So, call it “Depot Surabaya”, is not the kind of fancy restaurant, is just a humble small depot that located at the corner of the storey building. The depot would serves mostly Java food, typical home-cooking food. Are such, Gado-gado, Nasi campur, Nasi goreng, Mie goreng including Es campur Surabaya and many more. 

I love Depot Surabaya just as much, thinking of the place and wondered whether still exist.

I adapt the fruit ingredients to my liking, but I really cant effort not to include the chocolate pudding, I would say, it’s a must, as the original Es campur Surabaya has it, so that makes the cold dessert remain signature, memorable and original! 

Finally, it comes the idea, “Indonesian mix fruits ice in mason jar”

Lovely idea: 
Whenever you have plan for an outdoor picnic with friends or family, this Es campur in mason jar is really cool idea, cute and rockin’!

Mix all the ingredients in a big container (see the recipe below)stir well to combine

Simply Fill up the mason jar with the Mix fruit ice mixture, firmly screw the lid to close the jar. 

Arrange and pack up in the chiller and ready to rock your outdoor picnic.

I would not specify the quantity of every ingredient in the recipe below.
You can make as much as you wish, feel free to substitute and modified the fruit according to your liking. 
Always keep the variant fruit in a separate airtight container, refrigerated up to 3 days.
